Judges urgently needed

The Richest Hill on Earth Speech and Debate tournament will be held at Butte High School on January 17-18.

Each year we send out hundreds of letters and emails requesting community members to volunteer to judge rounds of speech, interp, and debate rounds. Each year the response seems to be underwhelming. It may be people do not feel they know enough about the activity to judge for us. We always hold a training session for new judges to train them before the tournament. This year we are holding the session on Tuesday, January 14 at 6:30 p.m. in the Butte High School auditorium.

Each event is easy and fun to judge. Plus, the competitors and coaches from all schools are available to answer questions.

According to our judges' coordinator, we have a quarter of the people we need to successfully hold a tournament. On January 17, there should be about six hundred students from each AA school in Montana. We need community members to judge at our tournament (especially in debate) or else these six hundred students and coaches do not get the opportunity to do what they love to do: speak, interpret, and debate.

Watching these speakers present will impress you. You will see the very best all competitors have to offer. When judging, you will see the tremendous skills of interpers, speakers, and debaters. Only the best will compete at this meet. I have been involved with speech and debate programs since 1990 and I love it. Please help us so you can love it too. Please contact Roger McCullough soon at 533-2173 or email bhs.talkingbulldogs@gmail.com. You can also access the forms at www.bsd1.org by clicking on departments then click activities then on speech and debate judge forms so you can choose your rounds and events. Please donate some of your time to assist us in running a great tournament. Without you, we are at a standstill.

Roger McCullough, Butte
